Commenting on the election of David Cameron as Leader of the
Conservative Party today, Michael Fabricant says "I told David Cameron
some months ago that I was a moderniser when Notting Hill was still a
slum! I am therefore delighted that a moderniser like David has been
elected – and by such an overwhelming majority. His agenda will
change the direction of the Conservative Party as it looks towards the
future rather than dwelling in the past. And his plans coincide with my
own aspirations for the future of our Party.
"David Cameron knows Staffordshire well having stood for Stafford back
in the 1997 General Election. Once he has had a chance to settle in, I
hope he will be able to visit our County."
